The Hijjr Valley (Al-Hijjr)
99 verses, revealed in Mecca after Joseph (Yousuf) before Animals (Al-An 'aam)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ AlifLaamRa. Those are the verses of the Book, the Clear Koran. (1) Oft times would those who disbelieve fain that they had been Muslims. (2) Leave them to feast and revel, beguiled by hope; they will come to know soon. (3) And never did We destroy a township but there was a known decree for it. (4) No nation can anticipate its term, nor delay it. (5) They say: 'You to whom the Remembrance is sent down, you are indeed mad. (6) Why do you not bring to us the angels if you are of the truthful ones? (7) We send not the angels down except for just cause: if they came (to the ungodly), behold! no respite would they have! (8) Behold, it is We Ourselves who have bestowed from on high, step by step, this reminder; and behold, it is We who shall truly guard it [from all corruption]. (9) We did send messengers before thee amongst the religious sects of old: (10) And never came there unto them a messenger but they did mock him. (11) Thus do We make it traverse the hearts of the guilty: (12) they do not believe in it. This has been the wont of people of this kind from ancient times. (13) And even if We opened to them a gate from the heaven and they were to continue ascending thereto, (14) They will say all the same: "Our eyes were dazed (and clouded over). We were a people ensorcelled." (15)
